A 2 hour workshop consisting of an image illustrated lecture-exchange followed by a practical hands-on all-inclusive creative activity, using dry art materials on paper (no mess!!) event.

Some say her commentary is “Performance Art” in itself.  Inspired by her new pocket-sized book of the same title, How to Artist, Estelle draws upon her 35+ years of research in to what are the most motivational, compelling, effective, quick-fire ideas empowering, prompting, building, encouraging and guiding the habits that skilled Artists have lived and made decisions by, throughout the course of Art History.

Instead of staring at an empty studio, tirelessly struggling with brain fog, trying to find inspiration, Estelle’s bite-sized nuggets of information set you up for success in the most manageable way.

It’s the secrets and shortcuts from the awe-inspiring beginnings of great western art right from the Renaissance, though all the periods…and then some - Romantic Realism, Impressionism, trailblazing Dada, YBAs, cutting-edge Contemporary revolutionaries,… to name a few great isms.

Expect a show of Artists and Art History stories in this very useful lesson that’ll focus, challenge, boost and expand the Artists’ mindset, confidently navigating the artworld via Macaulay Culkin’s movie ‘Home Alone, that shark, the bed, those bricks, a rocking-horse pony and the first man landing on the Moon….
